While I’m usually skeptical towards e-mail blasts concerning oft-dissappointing ‘beat compilations’, I had to make an exception for these two and HOLLLLYYY SHITEEE am I glad I did. Released by Project: Mooncircle and Finest Ego, there is a breathtaking amount (59 tracks, 500mb) of free, amazing music within these two compilations, with mostly European producers filling out the rosters, released last year and last month, respectively. Absolutely do not sleep on this!!!
